    • Can't load through steam, when I load through the file in the source folder can't Log in.

      The game refuses to let me log in but when I load through steam it says I don't have permissions, though even when I normally run the game in the source folder it works up until the "LOG IN FAILED: Please try again. If this persists, please file a ticket."

      • Game Freezing

        When i try to play the game I can't because every time I move my mouse the game freezes but the mouse icon doesn't. when i'm not moving the mouse the game is playing and i can see a constant feed from it and not one individual picture. The weird thing is is that this only happens when i move my mouse. If I walk around with the W,A,S,D controls it's fine; the moment The mouse moves the game freezes.

                              Thank you for the feedback! Unfortunately it’s simply not possible for us to create MalikaPlays an in-game character, but we sent Malika our very first ever SOS T-Shirts and hoodies so we can turn the IRL Malika into an SOS character!

                              If you want to learn more about what goes into creating the SOS game characters (it’s a lot of work!), check out some of our past development streams:
